Scalpers Rain On Obama's Parade

1/10/2009 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Barack ObamaThere was a time you could score some tickets to Obama's Inaugural parade for just $25-a-pop -- but that was before the scalpers descended.

Loads of the 5,000 available bleacher seat tickets are being re-sold for ten times their $25 dollar ticket price. Some scalpers have even reported pulling in $600 per ticket.

Obama's camp is against the scalping -- but unfortunately the practice is legal.

I love the comments from the Obama haters...whenever you get done with all the slander...he's still PRESIDENT OBAMA get used to it and learn to deal with it just as those of us that didn't like Bush or any other President the held the office. If you really give a damn about this country you'll support Obama as our 44TH President and wish him and our country the very best. Grow up people this is 2009 grow up or be left behind.

I totally agree with you!!!! the man is a worthless, corrupt hypocrite jerk. He can't show real proof that he is a natural born citizen; he spent most of his life hanging out with radicals (they even paid for his college and home); for a long time he belonged to a church that preached the hatred of the white people and the government, and it when it all came out in public then all of the sudden he did not belong anymore. He belonged to an organization that committed major fraud during his campaigning (and that is the only reason he won) but most of all he told America that there will change. But what he failed to tell America was that it was bad change what he was referring to... WHAT A FAKE!

I am so glad that I did not drink the kool-aid, 'cause otherwise I would have probably created a corner in my house where I could worship (and my dog would have been mad at me because I took his space for that)

I wouldn't give you a plug nickel to see any politician. 99.99% of them are corrupt. The other .001% haven't been there long enough to become corrupt.

Well, I didn't vote for him and he is not my President. I have grown up, this racist, still isn't my President. I don't have to support this piece of garbage and I still give a damn about my country.

This is what makes America so great! The man isn't even in office yet and everyone is knocking him.
I'm so ashamed of this country. No wonder other countries don't respect us anymore. We elect a man then knock him down.

Whether you voted for him or not - he will be President on 1/20/09. To all of you who are still saying dumb stuff (like he can't prove his citizenship and no mother in law ever lived at the White House) you CHOOSE to be ignorant.

His b/c is available on line - just google it - if you are calling it fake - then the State of Hawaii is the originator of the fraud. Other mothers in law have lived in the White House - Truman's MOL and Eisenhower's MOL to name just two.

Hate Obama all you want - for at least the next 4 years.....because that is the minimum amount of time he will be in office.

Number 47 - For God's sake learn how to write and spell English. Maybe you're only four. If so, I'm sorry, but pay more attention in class will you?
